Despite the problems they had with the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung won’t stop launching new smartphones! Today, for example, the South Korean manufacturer introduced the Samsung Galaxy On7 (2016), which has all the chances of becoming one of the best mid-range handsets of the moment.
At a first look, it’s an incredibly stylish phone, measuring 151.7 x 75 x 8 mm and weighing just 167g, with a 5.5″ full HD TFT display and a fingerprint sensor, embedded in the physical home button. Oh, and it’s available in gold, pink, and black!
Moving on to the specs, the Samsung Galaxy On7 (2016) is powered by a Qualcomm-made Snapdragon 625 chip, with an octa-core configuration, running at 2.0 GHz. The amount of RAM counts 3 GB, while the internal memory is 32 GB, but you can always increase this with up to 256 GB, using a microSD card.
In terms of camera, the phone comes with a 13 MP camera on the back, as well as an 8 MP front-facing shooter. It’s not high-end, but it’s still a great configuration, considering that we’re talking about a mid-range device.
Finally, we should also mention that the Samsung Galaxy On7 (2017) comes with a 3300 mAh battery, supporting fast charging, so it should make it through a full day of intensive use with ease.
The operating system is Android 6.0 Marshmallow, customized with the manufacturer’s own interface, TouchWiz.
Currently, the handset is available just in China, with a price tag of RMB 1,599, which roughly translates to $240, at current exchange rates.
Samsung is also expected to launch the 2016 variant of the Galaxy On5 as well, which should sport a similar configuration as the On7, but with a smaller display, most likely 5.0″ or 5.2″. Keep an eye on our blog, as we will be back with updates about this model as well!
